As part of the Massachusetts Farm to School movement, Clarksburg School in Clarksburg, Mass., has launched a vegetable garden on its campus. Food from the garden, including fresh tomatoes and cucumbers, is used to create a salad bar in the cafeteria. Clarksburg School has also created a nutrition plan and joined up with Mass in Motion, a state health initiative that fights obesity by encouraging healthy eating and exercise. In addition, the school recently participated in the Massachusetts’ Harvest for Students Week, inviting special guests to speak, including Rep. Gailanne Cariddi and a local produce farmer.
